Salum Abdallah & Cuban Marimba BandNgoma Tanzania ... LP
Domino Sound, Early 60s. New Copy ... $16.99
Beautiful sounds from the short-lived musical legacy of Salum Abdallah and his Cuban Marimba Band – a group from Tanzania, but one who play with lots of influence from Latin Music – as you might guess from their name!

Peter AbdulGet Down With Me ... LP

The cover looks a bit cheesy – like some sort of Star Search graphic – but the album's a rock-solid gem from the second decade of Nigerian funk – recorded in Lagos with a great boogie vibe, and a groove that's as heavy on keyboards as it is on riffing guitar and percussion!

Manu DibangoAfrican Voodoo (180 gram pressing) ... LP
PSI/Hot Casa (France), 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $32.99
An amazing rare chapter in the career of the legendary Manu Dibango – and a darn funky one as well!

A rare bit of funk from Manu Dibango – one of numerous iterations of the Soul Makossa LP that was issued in '72!

Yonca/Matsuli (UK), 1976. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
One of the hippest albums we've ever heard from bassist Johnny Dyani – and that's saying a lot, given his tremendous records of the 70s!

Sahinler (Turkey), 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $19.99
Funky Turkish rock from the enigmatic Ersen – an artist we'd rank right up there with Erkin Koray and Selda for choppy grooves and offbeat music!

Afrodesia (Nigeria), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $22.99
Christy Essien is a singer with a very unusual voice, especially for the Nigerian scene – kind of this flowing, rich approach that seems to work equally well with ballads and groovers! There's plenty of the latter here – tunes that get great backing from Blo, who you probably know from ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A classic album of steel band grooving – a sound that made a surprising crossover in the American soul market in the early 70s!

The fantastic first album from Exile One – a group who recorded more mainstream work in Paris later in their career – but who really sound fierce and funky here right at the start!

Electrified zouk from the Guadeloupe scene – just the kind of unusual musical hybrid that's always made the Antilles so great!
